ROGERS COUNTY PARTNERSHIP STRENGTHENS AREA DEVELOPMENT

A unanimous vote of Rogers County Commissioners on July 5th approved a new partnership between the county and the Claremore Industrial and Economic Development Authority (CIEDA).  The $300,000.00 investment will provide the opportunity for CIEDA to expand its efforts including the hiring of a full-time Workforce Development Program Manager.

CIEDA entered a new season in 2016 with an enhanced strategy and new approach to pursue the area’s prosperous, innovative, skilled, and livable future. This will be accomplished through key initiatives and aggressive tactics for business attraction and retention; entrepreneurship and small business development; workforce readiness and attraction; and community advocacy and development.

Claremore plays a key role in Rogers County’s economy with CIEDA leading advancements and achievements that further grow the economy and quality of life within the county. Current workforce development efforts include the Partners in Education and the Claremore Collective Young Professionals programs.
